FAME is a replica of a privateer schooner that sailed from Salem during the War of 1812! We sail up to five times a day between May and October from Pickering Wharf in Salem.

FAME was built in Essex by National Heritage Fellow Harold Burnham in 2003. She is a locally-owned, award-winning business that works with the Park Service, Essex Heritage, the Salem Public Schools and others to increase appreciation of Salem’s maritime history and traditions.
